“Liverpool’s answer to London’s Dishoom” – Nisha Katona’s Indian street-food concept, “in the heart of the city”, has really nailed it, delivering “small sharing helpings of Mumbai-style street food”, alongside “yumblelicious” cocktails, served “by welcoming and knowledgeable staff” in a “modern and individual setting” (albeit one now being replicated around the country). Top Tip – “the always-good tiffin box option is the best”.
“I have not met anyone who has been who hasn’t raved!” – ex-barrister, Nisha Katona’s “trendily located” street food venture is “a really good new wave Indian” and has “succeeded in spades” in ‘The Pool’, providing “fresh”, “punchy” dishes that are “incredibly varied in flavour, and variety” in an environment that’s “always full and buzzing”, alongside some “very interesting cocktails”. “No booking, so in the evenings you need to put your name on the list and go for a drink until your table is ready”. Top Tip: “take pot luck and order the tiffin box where the chef chooses what you get”. (This was her initial branch – she’s expanded her “Dishoom of the North West” to other sites and cities now).
“Fresh, zingy ‘street’ food made from ingredients that you feel are doing you good” (“especially the A1 vegetarian section”), helps inspire excited reviews for ex-barrister and food writer/vlogger Nisha Katona’s “totally different style of Indian”, lauded for its “enthusiastic young staff” and “give-away prices”. Since December 2016, it’s also had a bigger Castle Street sibling (as well as openings in Manchester, Birmingham…)
“Interesting Indian street food” bites (“I’m not sure it is in fact street food, but whatever it is, it’s very well done”) win ongoing praise for this “relatively recent arrival on Bold Street”, which offers a selection of tapas dishes, many in tiffin boxes. In December 2016, Nisha Katona is opening a second bigger site, just off Castle Street.

"slick restaurant offering some unusual dishes"
"Uninspiring Indian whose model of tapas style eating has very quickly become dated. Great for a bigger group. "
